    True. Did I say I disagreed with you? I was trying to explain why it was happening, NOT whether I approved of it.

    I think you might as well get used to an accelerated pastiche of the American past. Just as technology cycles shorten between advancements, so you are also going to see an accelerated cannibalism of past American culture. Like I said, the ABILITY to rip off the past has become something the consumer -- and not a bona fide artist -- can do now, due to the internet and tech boom. People with no musical skill can sample and mix their own songs, for goodness sake; the opportunity is now widespread, so remaking things is far simpler and also becoming more engrained in the popular psychology of the culture.

    Meanwhile, has patience EVER been an aspect of American commercialism? No. It's driven by money; if they can make a cost assessment and see a profit, it's going to be done by someone... and if you don't do it first, someone ELSE will. Hence, the cycles will shorten... which unfortunately will ruin the project since you HAVE to let things disappear in the past for some time so that the culture can approach them fresh; remaking movies too soon (if at all) ruins the potential for the remake to be worthwhile.

    Um....you can take your battle off this thread and off the site, preferably. This isn't the place for it.

    And you can learn to defend the rules better. You are unfit to be a moderator - so you can piss off.

    It's a remake of a movie that wasn't very good in the first place. I'm not upset, people should've seen it coming.

    Well, Mr. Wes Craven is essentially the modern Sell-Out Horror King, and has been since his initial success. He's the George Lucas of horror.

    I hear he's a little upset that his favorite film is being remade without his involvement. Waaah.

    I probably won't see it in the theater, but I haven't seen a remake in the theater since Dawn of the Dead. 99% of the remakes are garbage.

    Because this is so out of place here, I really don't know what you are trying to accomplish by taking potshots at me.

    Because your signature and the type you list under your avatar are different. Today you have ESFJ under your avatar. Apparently you have issues.

    I love the original Nightmare. Even if people see it coming it doesn't mean they have to like it. Just because something is a trend doesn't mean we have to accept it.

    My ex is boycotting Last House on the Left.

    There don't seem to be a huge lot of sentimental horror movie buffs replying to this thread. Oh well.
